 Need Help Am Frustrated

Hey,

I have completed the entire database.  I know what I am doing, this is not
the issue.

I am trying to configure the web companion and produce html pages using the
cdml codes.  I can't get it to work.  I have spent roughly 18 hours on this
already and I am going nuts.

My questions:

1) do I have to produce it in the web folder or can i just write the code in
CUTE HTML

2) what is the appropriate syntax to simply display the information in a
record in a sentence (ie. The current advertising rate for a ["information
from a particular field in a particular record"] is ["price from the
corresponding field"])

3) in every template and example given with the software the actual template
doesn't work so I can't reproduce and modify functional code.  This has left
me wondering which way to lay it out.  I have tried many approaches.  I need
to know where I can view some functional code so that I can understand the
flow.

I am sure everyone is very busy and I respect that, I am so lost now I don't
know which way to go.  I am even considering scrapping the whole thing and
starting again in SQL Server and ASP.  Please help.

Your served web pages should be held within the Web folder. You can
write them
anywhere, using anything, but they have to end up in the Web folder...

The current advertising rate for a [FMP-field:Name of Field] is
[FMP-field:
Name of another field]. Note that this has to be the result of some sort
of find request, and that the fields have to appear on the specified
layout...

You have to view them through the web. You cannot open them off the hard
disk.
So, instead of using the open command, you should use your browser:
http://129.78.64.247/ will open the default.html in the root of the Web
folder... (the above is a working example actually)

Erkle... FMP is a lot easier, quite frankly. feel very free to mail me
direct re this, as I've done that learning curve now ;-)
The IP address above is a FMP only webserver...
